As a national organization, HIEC-ApprenticeSearch.com honours and acknowledges the traditional and ancestral territories of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples across the country.
We recognize the diversity of Indigenous peoples and communities coast to coast, including over 600 First Nations Communities, four Inuit Nunangat regions comprising 53 Inuit communities, Métis Nations, settlements and regions, Treaties 1-11, 25 modern treaties, and all unceded territories.
We respect the historic and current relationship Indigenous peoples have to the land on which we live and work. We are committed to collaborating and establishing respectful relationships with Indigenous peoples by striving to practice reconciliation in our everyday lives, communities, and workplaces.
HIEC-ApprenticeSearch.com’s head office is located in Burlington, Ontario. Burlington as we know it today is rich in history and modern traditions of many First Nations and the Métis. From the Anishinaabeg to the Haudenosaunee, and the Métis – our lands spanning from Lake Ontario to the Niagara Escarpment are steeped in Indigenous history.
The territory is mutually covered by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy, the Ojibway and other allied Nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes. We would like to acknowledge that the land on which we gather is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit.
